Step-by-Step Mining Rig Build Guide

We put together a step-by-step guide for building a 6 GPU mining rig with Nvidia cards. We have built this same exact configuration many, many times and have the BIOS and Windows 10 settings nailed down with the only variance being the total number of cards (between 6 and 8 GPUs). Sharing in case it helps anyone…

How to Build a 6 GPU Mining Rig

The guide is a 6 GPU build, but the instructions are the same from 1 to 8 GPUs (with an M.2 to PCI-e adapter).

We are retooling the guide so it covers many motherboards and cards (the guide currently, for example, is completely valid for 1070s, 1070tis, 1080s, 1080tis, etc., although for the cards with a higher draw you may need a larger PSU, for example; similarly, there are many motherboards that would work with the guide, but the exact location of the BIOS settings are different as are the maximum number of GPUs you could use…)…

Hope it’s helpful!


Really nice writing and explanation! Layout is also very pleasant :smiley:

You mention concern about static electricity, make sure they do the virtual memory, hold their hand for bios updates, O/S installation, troubleshooting steps when a gpu isn’t showing, multiple links to other sites for additional help and parts to look for. 4 out of 5 stars and a like!!


Thanks, appreciate the feedback!
